I am on the hunt for a job in the coastal NC area for next year. We are moving to the Wilmington area from Virginia. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher right now. I would like to keep that position. I am not interested in being a classroom teacher. (Kudos to you all that worked in the classroom this year. You deserve the biggest raise ever!!)

Anyway, I'm looking at districts in the area and I don't even see people listed in my position. I'm getting scared that this position doesn't exist in the area.

Anyone in the Wilmington NC area know if there are technology resource teachers in the schools? I've seen very few listed.

Thanks a bunch!

I donít live anywhere near there, but is it possible that they call your position something else there which is why you donít see any openings in your position?

It is only March and the other possibility is that opening are not yet being posted. Some districts give teachers until July to resign. I would just keep looking at openings and see what comes up and look to see if there are any job descriptions with titles that are unfamiliar to you to see if they have a different title for what you do.

Instructional coach that works with teachers/students with technology. Like a math specialist or reading specialist but with technology. : )

I'm having a hard time even finding those positions on school websites. I have looked all through all the of the staff and don't see anything remotely similar.

I'm hoping some things are posted as the end of school gets closer. I'm just a little stressed that I need to find something. : )

I have never heard of a position like that. I would hang in there because I am sure most states will be looking into that type of coach with all the technology we now use. Can you teach a technology class?

In my county in NC we have a job called Instructional Technology Facilitator. I believe their job is to handle tech issues. Teach teachers new tech and help teachers facilitate with classes.

What state are you in? Where I am in VA, there is an instructional technology teacher in every school. It's strange to me that this doesn't occur everywhere. I'm wondering if this is something that could come in the future to other parts of the US.

We had them in my district in NC, but budget cuts deleted them from all elementary schools.

In my district that job is an instructional assistant type position. Every school has one, but far less expensive than a credentialed teacher. They only work 20/30 hours per week depending on the size of the school, it is an hourly position.
